EUREKA! is a partnership program between Keiretsu Forum and the City of Berkeley Office of Economic Development. Its purpose is to provide mentoring, resources, networking, and feedback from angel investors to early stage entrepreneurs that derive from the innovative environment in Berkeley.

Application deadline: September 19th. Entrepreneurs that fit this criteria are invited to complete the online application. There is no fee to present.

Ten companies will be invited to present at the October 7th EUREKA! event. The entrepreneurs will present to a distinguished panel of Angels for 10 minutes: 2-min presentation, 4-min Q&A, and 4-min feedback.
